Sand dunes gone storm surge 4' into house knocking down walls first floor. Hurricane Florence will slow down as it approaches the coast and moves inland. Hurricane-force winds extended 90 miles from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles. Like a giant hair dryer, these winds push seawater into low-lying marshland and delta areas.
Heavy rain, wind gusts and rising floodwaters from Hurricane Florence swamped the Carolinas as the massive storm crawled toward the coast, threatening millions of people in its path with record rainfall and punishing surf. But while the storm is predicted to pass near Wilmington, North Carolina, the majority of surge-related flooding will actually be to north near Pamlico Sound. More than one million people had been ordered to evacuate the coasts of North and SC and Virginia and thousands moved to emergency shelters, officials said. But even much lower flood levels can be unsafe and reach surprisingly far inland, as The Weather Channel demonstrated in a stunning video released today. That makes it hard to project how the region will ultimately be affected.
More than 80,000 people were already without power as the storm began buffeting the coast, and more than 12,000 were in shelters.

Forecasters said that given the storm's size and sluggish track, it could cause epic damage akin to what the Houston area saw during Hurricane Harvey.
The worst of the storm's fury had yet to reach coastal SC, where emergency managers said it was not too late for people to get out.

"There is still time, but not a lot of time", said Derrec Becker of the South Carolina Department of Emergency Management.
